BPRA Processor Architecture
Powertrace supports the design and development of the BPRA processor architecture which provides outstanding task switching capabilities due to its special hardware design with built in hardware scheduler and banked pipeline registers.
BPRA (Banked Pipeline Register Architecture) brings a set of unique features in the hands of embedded systems designers:
- Uses a built in hardware scheduler that totally eliminates the need of a conventional software OS.
- Extremely fast scheduling sequence and task context switch, both performed in only 1 clock cycle.
- Very low jitter (2-3 clock cycles) due to the hardware implementation of the scheduler.
- Task context isolation that eliminates the possibility of data corruption.
- Highly deterministic.
- Highly valued for time critical applications.
- 32 bit RISC pipelined Harvard architecture.
